“I believe that would be ‘Mad Monster Party.’ I think it had Phyllis Diller in it. It was a stop-motion picture.”

“‘The Nightmare Before Christmas.’ It has a good message about trying to do the right thing and making people happy.”

“The one with Ernest in it, ‘Scared Stupid.’”

"Aliens vs. Predator Requiem" would be good. You haven't met my family . . .

Finally! Another person who knows Saturday the 14th! Anytime I mention that movie, people look at me like I'm crazy because no one's ever heard of it.

Tim Burton's Ed Wood is hilarious-not exactly family appropriate, but Johnny Depp and Martin Landau are great! I like 'Mad Monster Party', too and 'It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown' is a classic.

That wasn't the first film that came to mind when they said family appropriate. Although I did see Carnival of Souls for the first time when I was still pretty young.

What an oxymoron. No Halloween movie worth watching is "family-appropriate".

KU Foofball Starring Turner Gill! Wholesome entertainment - no objectionable language, but plenty of scariness throughout. In fact, most fans leave halfway through.

Young Frankenstein...

Igor: You know, I'll never forget my old dad. When these things would happen to him... the things he'd say to me.

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: What did he say?

Igor: "What the hell are you doing in the bathroom day and night? Why don't you get out of there and give someone else a chance?"
